  Bess and her little brother are at the beach and there are so many adventures to be had. First the children build a boat and then, once their craft is ready from the tiller to the red patch sail, the children get a compass and a chart from "Captain Bart" and they set off.
  Of course the children have all sorts of adventures involving buried treasure, pirates on the high seas and much more.
  This charming little book celebrates the imagination of two children as they play at the beach. Surely there is nothing these two cannot do with a little imagination, lots of sand and water, and a few friends.
